This small domaine is owned by Valerie and Daniel Alibrand. Both are relatively new to wine, having started the domaine in 2005 from vines purchased from Valerie's family. They farm 7 hectares of vineyards in the village of Fargues, and their resulting wines have been attracting a lot of attention. Fargues has a reputation of producing world class botrytized wines from a chateau of the same name. The Alibrands are fortunate to have the old vines they have, as they impart amazing complexity and concentration due to the very low yields. The wine is 50/50 Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grown on gravel, clay and sand.

The vineyards are being converted to organic, and should soon be receiving certification. The salamander on the label refers to their presence on the vineyard land they farm. Grapes are 100% hand-harvested with rigorous sorting and selection. Fermentation takes place with natural yeast in 3- year old barrels, and is aged on its lees with stirring for a year.
